For Those In Peril: Shipwrecks, Memorials, and Rescues

Saturday, May 25 through Sunday, October 20, 2013

Explore with us the shipwrecks and near misses; the perfect storms and sudden squalls; those lost at sea and the families left behind; and the brave lifesavers and brilliant marine equipment innovators. Through the Museum’s collection of marine art, portraits, photographs, lifesaving equipment, original manuscripts and logbooks, small watercraft, models, and navigational instruments, the stories of “those in peril” will come alive in the summer of 2013.

This exhibit is funded in part by the Davis Family Foundation and the Maine Humanities Council.
